This was dodgyly added, that is without much discussion and therefore without much thought about the consequences. Actually a live performance (and I know of several such cases, even live covers of albums) is a special case of another recording of an album and therefore should use the OtherVersionRelationshipType like tracks do. I had proposed adding attributes to it in the past, like "live", "acoustic", "studio" (a song might have been first played live only), ... Also I still think that OtherVersionRelationshipType should be renamed, see the discussion section on its wiki page. :) > Proposed: add a track-track "is a live performance of" AR, Remove the > release-release version of the AR (converting any such existing ARs to the > track-track ARs) Disagree for the reasons above.
